Hi I am using firefox in arch linux 5.17.9-zen1-1-zen kernel and after the new firefox update I can't right click in firefox. Whenever I right click the context menu shows up for 1 sec and then it automatically takes me to the previous page. Click on the image automatically prompts me to download it although I don't want to download the image. Is there anything I can do to fix the issue ?

Firefox and thunderbird: invisible dropdown menus / missing overlay planes

Hi all, due to the occurring problem I cannot select topic to describe best my type of question:

Description of fault: Using Open Suse Leap current version 15.3 (KDE) with all patches installed (zypper dup: no action required) In either thunderbird and firefox application (but e.g. not in dolphin or k3b or gimp...) I have following problem: When pressing any entry in File ... View... bar I do not get a visible dropdown menu to chose from Firefox specific: When I try to use a bookmark folder in the bookmark bar there is no visible dropdown menu to chose from When I try to chose from a dropdown menu inside the content of a web site i will get no visible feedback at all.

BUT: when I want to chose a bookmark that should appear in a dropdown list and I move the mouse to that remembered position I see in the lower left corner the bookmark's address and I can chose it! The same happens with the dropdown menus from the the File.... View... Help line. I am able to chose a command once I remember where to point to.

So I guess all what is missing is the overlay plane where the menu contents reside.

This problem occurs in 95% of the time I use both applications, BUT there are 5% of the time where everything works like a charm. I have no idea what i do differently in that usage. Whenever Firefox works normal, also thunderbird does. Is it somehow a KDE releated problem?

How can I fix that problem? Any hints?

Thank you

Johannes

In my Bookmarks Toolbar I have created a Folder, 'News' and placed it at extreme left, next to the 'Show Your Bookmarks'. By clicking on the 'News' Folder I can see and select any of my favorite Web news sites. Very handy. Today, however, when I clicked on the News folder my 73-year-old hand accidentally dragged the News folder on top of the 'Show Your Bookmarks' icon and the News folder disappeared !!

Hi! First of all, I'd like to congratulate the community on the 100th edition of Firefox.

The subject was selected as "other" because it is not a failure or problem, but a suggestion for improvement related to the information on the volume of cookies and website and cache data stored on disk.

It's been a while since I noticed this and now I present it in writing asking whether or not it is feasible to implement the suggestion below.

In Settings / Privacy and security / Cookies and website data, the amount of “bytes” stored taking up disk space appears.

According to the detailed description on the subject, available at the address

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/clear-cookies-and-site-data-firefox

there is a screen copy illustrating the explanations, for example:

Cookies and website data Your stored cookies, website data and cache are currently taking up 468 MB of disk space. know more

That's the point: "Your cookies, website data and cache stored are currently taking up 468 MB of disk space"

However, this information freezes when reaching 1.0GB.

The exact question: could this information be shown beyond the conditioned threshold until the user decides to clear all data?

Without further ado, I thank you in advance for your attention and, as far as possible, I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely, Ricardo Pinto. Basic Firefox User in Brazil

A lot of times while coding I press Ctrl+S to save Visual Studio Code and update live server (while watching on firefox the result). The problem is that when I'm focused on Firefox Ctrl+S pops up the Save Page window and (if I held Ctrl+S for more than a split second) it crashes (probably due to multiple popups becoming unresponsive). The mouse can't click to cancel the pop ups for saving the page nor interact it. I have to kill the firefox process and restart it. I've been looking into disabling Ctrl+S shortcut in Firefox with no success (extensions are deprecated or require too many permissions I'm not comfortable with).

Would someone help me to disable Ctrl+S or enlighten me on how to not have firefox crash every time I accidentally press Ctrl+S?

Thanks!

Hi,

I'm using Duckduckgo as my search engine, but when I type in a search string, it Firefox prepends it with https://html.duckduckgo.com/html/... This opens a search page that doesn't follow my dark theme. When I click on a link, another link is added that creates a link back to the same URL, causing a loop. This never happened before I upgraded to Ubuntu 22.04 & the latest version of Firefox, 100.0.2. How can I change this back?

Thanks!

Hello,

When I select text in Firefox the selection is not highlighted. The selection itself does work (e.g. deleting a selected word) but is not visible. The problem occurs in all fields where text can be entered, so the URL space, the search field but also text field on a page like this one. The strange thing is that the problem also occurs in Thunderbird.

I am using Ubuntu 18.04.6 LTS, Firefox 99.0 and Thunderbird 91.8.1

A previous company employee set up a Firefox Account, that we release a Firefox Add-On against. This person set up their work account as the Firefox Account Primary Email and did not set up a Secondary Account. This person left the company, and their email account is no longer available. We now need to update the Add-On. We have authentication information to log into the account, but when we try to access the Add-On/Extension location, the system sends a verification code to the Primary Email. We cannot even set a Secondary Email for the same reason. What can we do since creating a new account will not allow us to access and update the existing Add-On?

I haven't used my microphone in Firefox in years. I tried today, logged into Google Voice, which tells me it can't access the microphone. I set permissions in Firefox's settings. I turned up all the mic settings in alsamixer. I tried https://mdn.github.io/web-dictaphone/ , recommended in another thread here, and it doesn't record either. I can use the microphone outside X, with sox's rec. I also can't record a new greeting in Google Voice.

Operating System Ubuntu 20.04.4LTS on AMD® Ryzen 3 pro 3200g 64bit processor. Firefox Web Browser version 100.0.2 (64-bit)

The method I can reproduce sound distortion:

I have clear sound playback through both system HDMI speakers or if earphones are plugged in, verified using the Ubuntu Sound Output test left/right (without distortion)

Then if I open a normal Firefox window and listen to YouTube video for example I have no distortion, if I however open I private window, say to access training material on Microchip University site I suddenly have distorted playback.

Please advise why private window opened suddenly distorts my output sound. Sound suspicious.
